humanitarian mission gone terribly wrong, in that case, somalia, one that ended with u.s. soldiers being dragged through the streets. not a good ending, and the colonel fears this one might not be, either. colonel, an honor to have you. what's your biggest worry? >> well, my biggest worry is simple. i don't really understand what the strategic vision is here, what is the outcome going to be. when you don't know the outcome what you worry about is the follow-on, what its retaliation by syria and are we now not going to be involved in a war we don't want to be in? >> neil: in somalia you can bring me up to speed. the idea was to get food and help out people in the middle of what was a growing civil war. so, our intentions and our purpose was sound, but it then went wildly awry. what happened? >> also the other part of the mission that was so important was to remove -- that was a very clear part of the objective and that is strange compared to what we see today because i -- everything we read is, our president and everybody says we don't want to remove assad from over there. so, it tells yo
the time the u.s. puts an end to all the talking and does something. >> welcome everybody, i'm neil cavuto. john mccain long ago argued syria crossed the red line now signs the president over the united states agrees and is ready to act. the senator in a moment on the potential fallout if this means war. first to scott martin on the fallout for investors. what happened today? >> well, neil, it was not pretty. this has been going on now for a couple of days. matter is skittish. we all know the economy is on very shaky ground, and now you're seeing, neil, as you mentioned, the rises mott prices on the gold, silver and metals, and oil, up three bucks a barrel today, near year-to-dade highs. that takes a lot of money out of the consumer's pockets. just a few cent rise can take billions out of the u.s. economy. >> neil: as you often remind me, scott, oil is traded like a commodity. not supply and demand. more like fear and greed. and if the perception is we could see a disruption in oil supplies out of the middle east, that's all these guys need. are they and too you think they are overracket r
the u.s. energy revolution, the prices of oil probably would have been up 10 to $20 a barrel, but because the u.s. is producing the most oil they have in 20 years we have been cushioned somewhat from all these global turmoils we have seen in the middle east. but i'll tell you what. our luck could run out because if you think about who is involved here, we're talking about syria, not major oil producer, but look at the players on the side. they have russia backing them, major oil producer. iran, fighting a proxy war, and on the other side, the united states, saudi arabia, the rest of the civilized world right now, it could marriage problem if we have a major explosion in the middle east, and we're very, very close right now, neil to that situation. >> neil: as you reminded me, oil is a commodity now. doesn't trade simply on supply and demand. which is often times hope and fear, and a greed issue. the beth seems to be it's going to be at least the possibility of a dislocation for a while and that's all these guys need to hear. >> that's all they need to hear. and there's a vali
are concerned how the government is going to use information it has about them. but we know these programs are essential and important because they have been able to thwart attackness the past. so it's a very significant issue. how do we prevent terrorist attacks in the future? we know that terrorist use technology to coordinate, and if osama bin laden was calling someone in the united states, we n't his stockbroker.hat because people need to know that the government is not going to gary all this information on them and one day in the future use it against them or have it leaked. this is a legitimate issue, and balancing those is not easy, and i think what we're struggling with as a country, how to protect americans and also protect their individual liberties and private expectations. it's not a trivial issue. >> neil: looks like republican are having a hard time reconciling those two extremes to hear senator paul tell it, if we're getting these constant reports out of the nsa that it went beyond just collecting over 115 million american phone records, to the latest news that is was every
with those of us in the medical profession and other interested people. we're going to get this done. this is not a battle between republicans and democrats and independents. we're talking aboutlet healthcare of the american populous. i peel to people to stop listening to the demagoguery and listen to logic. >> neil: it will come back to republicans want to torpedo this but have nothing in its place. should republicans have something or stripped down simple version ready to go but they're keen on defunding this thing now? >> well, i think we already have -- when i say we, i'm talk those of us interested in solving this problem. already something ready to go. and i don't think it's wise to take it and put it out there right now because then all of the energy will go to trying to destroy that. i think we need to be focused on finding a way to unfortunately deteeth the obamacare so we stop hurting the american people. you know, we need to be talking about making progress. this is only a small part of the problem but it's a big part of the economic situation that we find ourselves in. it

the skids. virginia's former democratic governor with us. governor, it's a real pleasure to have you. >> neil, good to be with you. >> you talk about this sort of weird juxtaposition between looking at the advancement and improvement we've made on things like racial equality, but not when it comes to just economic quality and the president himself mentioned it and said this is something party and generations have done. what is it that we can't budge? first of all, king's dream was based on the opportunity made available for people to live the american dream. consequently, the key at that time for all persons involved with the civil rights leadership was education. he felt if you could unlock the door, it would open other doors to advancement. unfortunately in today's economy, we find too many unemployed african-americans. we find too many instances and too many kids dropping out of school. we find too much violence in the communities. we find less parental involvement and we find communities throwing up their hands in di despair too many tis rather than saying we're not going to tole
that will use more services. as max bachus said, this is the train wreck, neil, and ceos under it. how can we plan going forward with this type of nonsense coming out of washington? and, hey, this is without even talking about what is going to happen in september and october, with the battle over the continuing resolution, the raising of the debt ceiling. neil, i can't imagine -- by the way i know you're going to think this is a shameless plug but on fox business, which you should demand if you don't get -- the coverage this morning was so spot on. i watched another network, forgive me, for a few seconds and nothing but cheerleading. everything is great and find. in the meantime, fox business dug through the numbers and they look at what the real effect it on the economy, and i got to tell you something. i'm a very optimistic person by nature. but you can't look at the raw data and you can't look at honest reporting on this economy, and say that mr. obama has been nothing but the worst thing that could ever happen to this nation economically. sorry. >> neil: we have to look at these numbers a
popularity goes up because people aren't used to people in charge admitting they were wrong and taking responsibility. he did it on civil rights when you had rioting in civil rights demonstrators beaten, and he had not properly prepared and planned for that eventuality. he blamed himself for that. self other instances during the kennedy administration when he did that. i think americans respect that. they admire it when a president does it. and when a president obfuscates it actually intensifies the problems he is dealing with. >> neil: sometimes as the press conference went on and i was listening -- very, very long appearings. i know he is a great lawyer and has legalees responses -- he could benefit from a short, terse jfk remark, and i'm reminded of this, after the bay of pigs fiasco and then-president kennedy talk about it. this is sport sweet. >> there's an old saying that victory has 100 fathers and defeat is an orphan, and i wouldn't be surprised if information is -- in regard to the recent activities. >> do you think that brevity might be helpful here? that the impactful, be to

of the egypt mess the saudis pulled a fast one on us. welcome everybody, i'm neil cavuto. and john mccain said america was losing its pull in the middle east. today the saudis proved it because while we're debating whether to pull aid from egypt here the saudis promising them a blank check, and as we cut aid to cairo, riyadh will make up the difference. the saudis want the muslim brotherhood out of egypt just as much as the government-backed military does and they're spare nothing expense to help make it possible and this isn't just about the saudis. israel also supports the crackdown of the military, eric says when it comes to our waning influence, a very sorry state. we have very few in our neighborhood now. bottom line, eric, our friends, quasi-friends, aren't exactly heeding our friendly advice. >> basically our influence in the middle east in egypt in particular, is out the window. as you said, israel, the saudis, jordan, all telling us, please, back the egyptian military. the muslim brotherhood are the original islamic terrorist group. they spawned al qaeda, created hamas. they are inhe

you that person. have a great day. ralph rayburn, best to you. here comes neil. >> neil: he told us we could keep our doctor. maybe he should just keep his healthcare law because he just announced yet another delay and suddenly his most crowning achievement is on life support, and the president maybe by the reason, because today in a nation busy searching for answers, we have just one question. when you keep changing the law, and the timetable for that law, haven't you effectively broken the law? tonight, our lawyer says you have broken something much bigger. a promise and a trust. that now looks more and more like a bait and a switch. >> neil: welcome. i'm really glad to have you. one of my favorite people. i'm neil cavuto. the white house saying it's responding to healthcare provider concerns so he is delaying the cap on individual out of pocket expenses, after delaying companies having to provide coverage. mark levin, says stick a syringe in it and kill it now. this isn't about a law on life support. constitutional attorney says this is about a country on life support. and one mark

. very good to have you, rachel. thanks for joining us. so you're okay if the city ends up footing a good chunk of his legal bills to fight him? >> well, the problem is that this is costing us money every day he remains in office. that's why we launched this recall drive, to get him out of office because he wouldn't resign. if you consider all of the costs involved in having a city paralyze paralyzed, we have departments without heads and can't get new directors with our city in chaos. >> i'm sorry, i see where you're coming from. obviously he could use that as a wedge to keep himself in office. you didn't want that to be an excuse. is that a serious sticking point though? is that what's slowing this down? >> well, you know, i think emotionally it hate to think he did something wrong and we're going to pay for it. but we have to think pragmatically. this recall has been tremendously successful, unbelievably so. but we still have 80,000 signatures to gather. so a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush they say. so we're supporting this resolution to have his resignation. >> all right. i

our own practices, even if one of us has a better plan. so that means that if you have a couple, both working, both who have health care insurance, one person in that couple may have better benefits. the spouse can't take those benefits. they're going to have to take the worst benefits that their employer is offering in this new reality. so, there's so many surprises that are in store for us that we -- nobody even really knows about yet. >> neil: that's where we bring to light the fees and things -- the navigators and all that. the president says, well, much ado about nothing. be bring this to folks' attention to say, did you know about this? died you know congress wants snout 97% of federal workers want out? we want to bring that to people's attention. >> and if people think that the people who are in congress being exempt from obamacare is where this ends, where there's a difference, who gets what insurance, that's just the beginning. it's going to be the same thing with who gets what kind of health care. not just insurance. >> neil: going to get ugly. >> it will be. >> neil: the pr

and for the party. what should the grand ole party do? to donald trump who had boehner's ear at golf out go joins us on the phone. donald, did he talk about in the middle of the game a possible shutdown. >> his focus is on his work. >> but he was golfing with you? >> that is through. but he is a good man. nobody wants a shutdown. obamacare is very destructive. what it is doing to the country is very, very bad. we have just seen the beginning. so many businesses are going to be closing up. so many businesses are unable to afford it. so many businesses, neil, are hiring part time people and taking full time people and making them part time. this way they can escape the wrath of obamacare. something has to be done. it may die of its own weight. if you look what is happening, it may die of its own weight. most people don't have any idea what they are doing. >> neil: i think that was romney's pointed. this is on life support of its own. i'm paraphrasing there but romney seems to be saying, you republicans risk doing more harm to your cause trying to push a shutdown over this. what do you think 6 that? >>
